“Charming place close to everything.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

We stayed here for two nights in July with our 11-year old son and he was thrilled to find that our triple room included a bunk bed! The room was very nice with one of the largest bathrooms I have encountered in Europe! Staff was great and the little pub/restaurant on the lower level was fun. It was super easy to walk to all the sights as well. As with most Belgian hotels, it didn't have air conditioning which is not necessary most of the time, but we happened to be there during the few days out of the year that it would really have been helpful. Still, we enjoyed our stay and thought it was a good value.

This hotel has a great location with just a short stroll into Central Ghent. The family room was very spacious with high ceilings. We didn't try out the restaurant attached to the hotel or the free drink offered on check-in at the restaurant as it was quite dark and didn't think it was a great area for our 2.5 year old.

I stayed here with a group of 13, location is only a few minutes walk from central Ghent. Greeted by friendly and helpful receptionist, our rooms were clean and fairly modern in style with TV etc. Can't complain about our stay, no disappointments, the bar downstairs is a bit dark and dingy but we preferred the courtyard, good breakfasts and staff. Well worth the money.

The location is quite convenient, a close walk to Kornlei and St. Michel's bridge.
Rooms are spacious and beds are very comfortable. Breakfast is paid extra, served in a pub that belongs to the hotel. Good coffee ! and very nice service, fresh juice. Worth coming back.

Set in the back streets, we found this to be a quiet, well-run hotel with lots of great features. The room was at the top (stairs very steep) and had everything we needed. The breakfast was great value and served in the pub which is connected. A gentle stroll got us the the centre of town. Staff were attentive.

As this was the cheapest (relatively !!!) hotel in the center of Ghent we booked it. Either because it was cheap, or because we were not lucky, we had the smallest room ever had. I don't think it was bigger than 9 sqm, the bed was occupying the whole space so you canot move around.
The reception is only when you need it, meaning that you have to call the girls (nice persons, by the way) to come down stairs. The atmosphere was rather like a student hostel, than a hotel, and honestly for the price paid, and no breakfast included, it was too much. The insonorization was not good either, but because were were on an alley we heard few noises, but the windows are simple ones so everything can be heard. The wi-fi was functionning poorely.
The location is indead good, very close to the historical center and commercial areas. A visit to Ghent is always pleasent as there are so many things to see.

Room Tip: Only because it;s so close to the center you may choose it, but personally I will not go there again...
